Halloween is just around the corner, and if you haven't already decided what you'll be dressing up as during dance class this year, IT'S CRUNCH TIME, GUYS!
So what should you be? Regular costumes can inhibit movement and distract you from working hard on your technique (ain't nobody got time for that), but not dressing up at all is lame and downright depressing. Dance class is just way more fun when you celebrate in all your spook-tacular glory. The solution? Freaky Halloween makeup! It won't distract you from class AND it'll allow you to look absolutely fierce and festive.
To get you started, we rounded up five Halloween makeup tutorials that are simply to die for (hehe, get it??). You'll be the belle of the ballet barre with these stunning looks.
Be sure to tag @dancespiritmagazine in all of the pictures you post from class on Halloween night. We can't wait to see what scary looks you go for this year. HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!! 🎃👻✨
1. Spooky Skeleton
This look is both scary and gorgeous! You'll look so good you'll have to constantly remind yourself to get your eyes out of the mirror.
2. Headless Beauty
Ok, this is actually terrifying. Your dance teacher will be totally spooked when you walk in the room. Plus, it's sure to help you elongate your neck throughout class! You're welcome.
3. Wicked Witch
Yaaaaaas queen! The pointy nose is the perfect touch to make you look absolutely WICKED. Wear a black lace leo and you're set.
4. Snow White
Pair this look with a red bow, a dark blue leo, and a yellow ballet belt, and your own Prince Charming is sure to show up. Or...maybe just your dance BFFs because you're too busy for that mess, anyway.
5. Wonder Woman
If you're a strong, independent young dancer who routinely saves the day (by pointing your toes and nailing quads like it's your job), then this look is 100 percent for you.
